11th Army Corps (France)



The 11th Army Corps was a unit of the French Army that was created in 1870 and fought in the Franco-Prussian War, the First World War and in the early battles of the Second World War.

After Erwin Rommel's Panzer Divisions crossed the Meuse in late May 1940, the 11th Corps infantry were over-run.
